New in-ear headphones? (Monster Turbines?)

Greetings H/A!

I come to you asking for recommendations for a new pair of In-Ear headphones.

I'm currently using, and am very happy with, an older pair of Creative labs in-ear earbuds. I bought these at least 3 years ago for around $40 (Canadian) and have had no problems with them.

I don't know the exact model I have, but they look identical to these ones:

They're the best earbuds I've ever used, but they are starting to show their age. So I'm looking for a new pair!


Problem is, I don't really know much about earbuds. I definitely want an in-ear pair, as I don't like the normal type of earbuds, don't like the larger wrap around ones, and I definitely don't want a standard pair of "over the head" headphones. I like the fact that I can just shove earbuds into my pocket and be done with them.

Looking online, I've only really looked at Future Shop and Bestbuy, which is severely lacking selection. Other than $200+ Sennheisers, or $10 Sony or Skullcandy shit I'm left wanting. I'm not bothering to look at anything less than $20, and anything I can find for less than $100 doesn't review well online.

Suggestions in the $40 - $60 range? I'm willing to go as high as $100 if it's really worth it, but I find it hard to justify anything more than that.
